Magnetic Manipulatives

My students need the ability to have a fun & hands-on way of learning how to build words. These 6 sets of magnetic tiles and 5 magnetic mats will allow the opportunity to add variation to the lessons

My Students

Every day in Kindergarten we practice making and building words. I am looking for a fun and hands-on way to build some variation into the learning process in order to keep the student's attention. Having these magnetic letter tiles will give them another way of practicing how to build words.

My students are wonderful and hard-working.

They are so quick to learn and participate and having these would allow for an active part of the learning process. I would love to have these available to give them another way (a fun way) of learning how to build words and manipulate the sounds of letters.

My Project

We will use these magnetic letter tiles in order to make word building more fun. These tiles will give us another way to add a fun twist to their learning. They will be able to manipulate the letters and their sounds to create words. This will hopefully ensure a greater understanding of word building. This will be an interactive way for the students to participate in learning rather than just sitting there and listening to or watching me.

The students will have a hands-on way of learning to build words to help ensure mastery of this topic.

This will help them to be actively involved in the learning process and keep them engaged in their learning.
